    I'm actually pissed about the cdg x h&m collab because now my searches for cdg items on ebay will be ruined by a bunch of overpriced reseller shit.

    Some people stick their head into the past too far, I'm not surprised.

    Yea, plus it looks like shit. Just because it's pseudo military looking and has a lot of buttons doesn't make it cool

    What is the difference between this and someone dropping money on vintage denimz?

    What is the difference between quality denim with unique features and a quality sweatshirt with unique features?

    The difference is that, those sweatshirts, in all likelihood, retailed for <$20 (or <$50 in today's prices) and were no better made than other stuff in their era. And they all came from thrift/vintage stores.


    At that price, there're lots and lots of options from current designers. Or for a bit more, Loopwheeler.

    Also so very, very fake.

    Yeah, alright. My bad, it's not like I did diligence on the item. I just thought it looked interesting, but didn't exactly investigate if it was genuine or not. I'll be more careful next time.

    Yea, plus it looks like shit. Just because it's pseudo military looking and has a lot of buttons doesn't make it cool

    It's just an opinion, and I happen to think that military inspired looks are cool. It's not the best version I've seen adn I think it's actually a bit over the top, but there were some features I liked. Besides, it's "cool ebay finds", not "only waht Chrono thinks is cool on ebay finds". No offence, just if it's not your taste, whatever, don't buy it.

    I think the point is that with something like vintage jeans there are a number of possible reasons for wanting them and the willingness to pay such as limited production runs or no longer available, they were good quality/expensive even at the time, they are highly regarded and hard to find, etc. To me those sweaters looked pretty run of the mill. But based on the prices, I was asking if there was something I wasn't seeing to justify them...
